Is /usr/lib/oracle/11.2 where you really unzipped/installed the instant client? because DBD::Oracle does not recognise this path as containing the instant client.

I don't use rpms to install instant client and it works fine.
You need the sdk.

You could try downloading the zip versions and unzipping them somewhere and point LD_LIBRARY_PATH to the unzip dir - I don't think you need to set ORACLE_HOME with DBD::Oracle and instant client and in some rare cases it actually breaks the install.
